    New track rods More powdercoating New driveshafts from VW Nice to see it all coming together At this point I just wanted to get the car back together and running. So it was a quick clean of the brake calipers and back on. I will probably get these refurbished next winter. Mount made for my Talon switch panel. Total newb at fabrication if you can call it that but good fun anyway. 400bhp NX Express wet kit just in case [emoji23] Car loaded up and on the way to the dyno Car made 555bhp on wastegate springs which is enough to run it in and zero modifications to the standard DRP gearbox. My Dad loves the wood but I think it has to go [emoji85] After lots of thought SQS or DonOctane [emoji848] decided to go for something purpose made and best of all UK made. Time to come apart again Lots and lots of Fing and blinding late the gearbox was out with the engine and transfer box still in position. Entirely possible but definitely yanking the engine next time. New guest has settled in nicely Turbo to charge cooler pipe powder coated after a few little tweaks Had a few issues on the dyno with pipes blowing off and overheating due to air locks so re-introduced an expansion bottle back in the system. Found a local guy to paint the car so decided on House of Kolor ‘Jet set back’ and lots of clear and colour sanding. Seen it on the tv a bunch so fancy myself a nice paint job. On area I’ve never paid a lot of attention to.

    Ok, as promised a long overdue update. Chargecooler painted and installed 30L fuel tank with duel -10 AN outlets. Planning on having 1 feed for electric pump to prime system and 1 clear run to feed the mechanical pump. Fuel & Ice tank mounted New 18x9j pro race 1.2’s that I won for a steal on Ebay, 265’s now on with no need for horrible flares. Dash offered up, needs mounting but can’t be bothered making mounts so it will be coming back out for the time being. Powercoated hubs with new VW bearings

    Think I’ve seen it on Edition38 a few years ago?

    My dream would be to do this with a Rallye but had this car for 7 years so the base was basically free.

    I'm using Powerflex black series bushes in R32 cast wishbones. Standard arb's for now as I have Gaz Gold coilovers with 400lbs springs. Maybe I will upgrade in future but for now my concentration is getting the car going.

    No problem. Message me on here or on my mobile 07802543850 if you need any help.
  13. Matty's Golf mk4 R32 Turbo 4 motion

    Can't wait to get this painted Nearly done
  14. Matty's Golf mk4 R32 Turbo 4 motion

    What are your plans? If you are doing a small turbo kit build should be much quicker than mine. Let me know if you need any help.

    I have sent it to Hangar 30 in Cambridge for the 8.5 spec roll cage but the rest of the work I do at home in the North East
